Easter Weekend 2018

Easter.   For some spring, bunnies, eggs, and baskets of candy come to mind.  But there is so much more: the greatest love story ever is centered on a cross and an empty tomb.  Because of the cross Jesus died on, our lives can be transformed and we can have a new beginning.  Because Jesus rose from the dead, we can have lives filled with meaning and joy in a broken world.  

Our doors are open to you; join us Easter weekend for a contemporary production celebrating Easter through live music, drama, humor, and a message of hope that endures and conquers even our hardest circumstances.
